Interested in learning more about the parks? Interpretive programs offer visitors the opportunity to explore and ask questions. Interpretive programs are presented by both National Park Service rangers and Sequoia Parks Conservancy naturalists.

The National Park Service offers a wide variety of ranger-led programs year-round, with most programming scheduled from Memorial Day (late-May) through Labor Day (early September). In winter, our popular ranger-guided snowshoe walks are a great way to explore. When you arrive, check visitor centers and bulletin boards in each area for program details or schedule changes.

Check our park map for locations. It takes about one hour to drive between each of the following areas: the Foothills, Giant Forest/Lodgepole, Grant Grove, and Cedar Grove. Mineral King is about a 1-1/2 hour drive from the turnoff at Hwy 198.
